One-Minute Chocolate Frosting

Category: Gifts, Kids, Chocolate

 Ingredients List

  • chocolate chips -- Any will do. I like Ghirardelli Bittersweet 60% Cocoa Chips. There are also non-dairy vegan chocolate chips, if that's how you roll.
  • canned evaporated milk--This adds smoothness and creaminess. The non-dairy crowd can substitute almond milk (not quite as creamy, but still good).
  • butter--I prefer butter for the flavor and texture, but you can substitute coconut oil (if you like the flavor), canola oil, or another neutral flavored vegetable oil
  • vanilla extract
  • powdered sugar--I haven't tried using alternative sweeteners; feel free to experiment, but I can't guarantee the results.


Put everything except the powdered sugar in a microwave-safe bowl. Microwave on high for 30 seconds. (Microwave power can vary--it takes 30 seconds in mine.)
Whisk until smooth. It only takes a few seconds. The butter and chocolate chips will melt into the mixture as you whisk. If they don't, return it to the microwave and zap in 10 second intervals until it will whisk into a smooth mixture. Don't overheat it!
Add the powdered sugar and whisk again until evenly mixed and smooth. Again, this only takes seconds.
Done! So fast and easy.
